    Maybe the solution is to create a debate forum

    Only two defining forces have ever offered to die for you, Jesus Christ and The American G. I. One died for your soul, the other for your freedom.

    Although I've been a member of this forum for some time, I'm not a regular, well not until recently. Most of us know what incident people are mainly referring to in this thread and I was indeed involved in that thread. I started off trying to give advise but this was ignored and the person in question started to get defensive. In my opinion, and what I suggested in a post, was just to ignore them. Troll or not, if you disagree with someone who won't listen to your reasoning and advise then the best thing to do is just not respond anymore. Afterall, you have said your piece and they have decided not to listen, so little point in saying it again and getting frustrated. Humans will naturally get defensive, especially when questioned and provoked, some more than others. But, I don't think this is a case of 'maturity', it's simply that some people are more reactive than others.

    All in all though, I find the members of this forum to be friendly and helpful. There's always going to be some friction between some members on all forums but believe me, there are a lot worse forums than this.

    I don't see what the big deal is. I don't feel as if anyone crossed any sort of line with the way that the kid was responded to. If it was such a problem there were multiple mods who were part of the threads early on and had multiple opportunity to close the thread. Most were asking for proof of his assertions or rebuking his claims. 99.999% of discussions on here are not anything that I would call argumentative or inappropriate. I personally do not understand how someone could be so turned off as to not visit as frequently because of the rare inappropriate post or comment. I like the eclectic nature and the broad experience range of all the members here. With that you are going to get the occasional jerk or conflict. Where else in forums or the real world with a broad mix of people are you not going to have conflict? I don't think that detracts from the forum, unless it becomes a chronic pervasive problem.

    ...what were "the squares" (i.e. in the context above)? Or would delving into that be opening Pandora's can of worms?
